Garden Contemplation

If we were to treat our bodies as if we were caring for a precious life form that we would like to thrive and grow and be flavorful, colorful and nutrient-rich, how might that look?  

Would you take a moment to consider its source of energy and quality of food?  Would you do your best to shield it from storms, yet have the wisdom to let it stand against an occasional strong wind to grow strong? Would you be able to lovingly tend to it, even though it may not be growing as quickly as you wish? Could you accept its changing appearance and eventual collapse and decay knowing it is just beginning another journey into the formless?
